This course introduces the topic of work and older adults. Learners will gain insight about older adults in the Canadian labour market through various pedagogical activities. Using clinical cases, students will gain insight on how to engage with stakeholders to develop return to work plans for older adult workers with a variety of illnesses or injuries in various organizational contexts, including both union and non-union settings. Learners will apply concepts and strategies from conflict resolution and problem-solving to learn to build collaborative relationships with all parties to facilitate early and timely return to work for employees following a leave of absence. Emphasis will be placed on the health and functioning of older adults through a biopsychosocial lens.
